After decades of advances in dental implant technology and millions of implant success stories, it’s now possible to get the gold standard tooth replacement solution in a streamlined and efficient process. In just one day, we can replace a single anterior tooth or implant bridge with a temporary prosthesis that provides natural-looking aesthetics and excellent oral function. Prior to surgery, we obtain your medical records and history, and perform a 3D scan with cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) technology and additional scans with an iTero® scanner. At our onsite lab, we use diagnostic imaging to create a digital workflow, a smile design preview and a wax model that guides a precision outcome on the day of surgery. At The Glen Dental, we make it possible to get the smile you deserve with Teeth in a Day in San Jose & Campbell, CA. To help make this dream a reality, we offer competitive pricing, in-house financing and partner with top-rated third-party financing companies.
Before Dr. Bhullar, Dr. Henne, or Dr. Kriegstein can place the titanium post, they need to assess the quality and density of the bone in your jaw, because sufficient health and density is required for a successful outcome. Thanks to their advanced skills performing various bone grafting techniques, our dentists can help nearly any patient become a candidate for dental implants. During surgery, a small hole is drilled though your gums and into your jaw under local anesthetic and IV sedation, if needed. An abutment is attached to a small segment of the post, which connects to the prosthetic crown that we mill onsite. During the healing period, your jawbone fuses around the implant in a process called osseointegration, which takes several months.
Traditional dental bridges require modification of adjacent healthy teeth to support the new bridge. Dental implants are incredibly versatile, because they can be used to support a new bridge of teeth without the presence of neighboring teeth. Gums can recede around a bridge and bone can resorb beneath the bridge, both of which can lead to a less-than-perfect smile. An implant-supported bridge preserves bone and is an ideal, natural-looking option for two or more missing teeth in a row.
Teeth Tomorrow® full-arch dental implants feel comfortable, look natural and can last a lifetime with proper care. While every patient who needs full-arch restoration has unique expectations and needs, this specific protocol is versatile and easily adaptable. It’s similar to the All-on-X protocol, in which four to six dental implants are placed on both the upper and lower arches, based on the patient’s specific smile needs. Prior to the day of surgery, we create a digital workflow and design to ensure precision implant placement. A 3D scan taken after surgery provides an accurate blueprint for crafting your immediate load prosthesis. Our onsite lab enables customized 3D printing and tinting of your provisional full arch teeth, delivering it less than 24 hours after your dental implant placement. Both the temporary and final full-arch dental implants are extremely durable and resistant to chips, cracks, stains and harmful bacteria.
One-day dental implants in San Jose & Campbell, CA are possible because Dr. Bhullar has perfected innovative protocols to enable same- or next-day placement. He has been placing dental implants since 2006, and has achieved many milestones in his career as an implantologist, including Diplomate status from the American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry (ABOI/ID). Partnering with leading global implant companies enables Dr. Bhullar to offer “immediate load” dental implant protocols specifically designed to maximize stability and support crowns and bridges right after they’ve been surgically placed.
The first step in your journey to a new smile is an initial consultation to discuss your unique health, functional and aesthetic goals. In addition to a comprehensive exam to evaluate your oral health, we assess the health of your teeth and jawbone with our CBCT and iTero scanners. Although many patients already qualify for Teeth in a Day or next-day solutions, Dr. Bhullar can often perform preparatory treatments such as tooth extractions and bone grafting in the same appointment with your dental implant placement and your customized temporary teeth fitting.
Before your next visit, our team will use the 3D image produced from your CBCT scan and digital impressions to plan the precise placement of your dental implants. Our goal is to maximize oral function and smile aesthetics for a beautiful, long-lasting restoration. Each implant post is then placed at the precise location, angle and depth. Although dental implant surgery is complex and requires extensive expertise and skills, preplanning simplifies and streamlines the process for a stress-free and efficient procedure.
When you come in for your dental implant surgery, you can opt for IV sedation in addition to a local anesthetic. After the procedure, you’ll wear your provisional teeth for four to five months, during which time your gums heal and the implants fuse with your bone and stabilize. By the time you return to our practice for your final high-quality zirconia prosthesis, you’ll be perfectly accustomed to your full arch teeth.
